year he drew with 9-0 Batal Chezhia in Russia for
the WBO Youth World title, so going into the lions
den against Karaceper will not be his first time.
Usmanov won the Ukrainian Light Heavyweight crown,
and last year he scored his biggest victory to
date when he captured the WBC title, decisioning
another undefeated Turk in Sukru Altay (12-0).
and accomplishments not in his favour, Karaceper
must be commended for taking a big step up in
class, and he will be highly motivated to do what
his countryman, Altay, failed to do.
Its rare to
see two up-and-comers fight at this stage of their
careers, and it is bound to be a good fight
between talented and ambitious boxers.
Also on the
Dilara Yucel will fight
Happy Daudi from Tanzania for the
vacant UBO Female World Super Welterweight title.
